Tax benefits for accounting training
Companies investing in employee training can now enjoy both tax and cash benefits under the enhanced Productivity and Innovation Credit (PIC) scheme.

The enhanced PIC scheme increased the quantum of tax deduction from 250 percent to 400 percent of expenditure spent per year on each qualifying activity. This translates to a maximum of a $1.6 million tax deduction for a company's expenditure on employee trainings.

Businesses with low or no taxable income can also enjoy benefits under the enhanced scheme. Besides tax deduction benefits, companies can apply to convert its expenditure on employee training into a non-taxable cash payout instead.
